So. California, Male With Red Throat

I have a nest in the eaves of my house every year, and I can't figure out what kind of birds they are. I'm in Orange County, Southern California. The most distinctive feature is that the male has a fairly subdued red-orange throat color and 2 or 3 horizontal white stripes on his wing. They are about twice as big as a sparrow, with light brown-gray feathers, and a relatively slender body. Any help would be appreciated.
